Digital Anarchy Announces Knoll Light Factory Compatibility with Windows 64-bit Systems and Adobe Photoshop CS4

Free Update of Knoll 3.0.2 is the First Digital Anarchy Product to be Released for Vista x64


San Francisco, CA — November 11, 2008 —

Digital Anarchy, known for its high quality creative software in the Photoshop market, has releasedtoday announced the full compatibility of their popular Knoll Light Factory plugin with Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Windows Vista 64-bit (x64). Photoshop CS4 64-bit is streamlined to take advantage of the faster performance and better memory handling that Vista x64 supports. Digital Anarchy’s Knoll plugin, which enhances the lighting in Photoshop images to produce dramatic or natural effects, takes advantage of that speed and performance increase with version 3.0.2.

Jim Tierney, president of Digital Anarchy, said, “Photoshop CS4 is a big release for Adobe and Vista x64 offers the potential for greatly accelerated performance. The performance bar keeps being raised with the ever increasing size of digital images and incredible but processor intensive new CS4 features like Smart Filters. Making certain that our entire product line for photo manipulation performs well in Photoshop CS4 has been an important priority for us.”

Digital Anarchy’s other Photoshop products have been fully tested to support Photoshop CS4 in both Mac and Windows 32-bit environments. These Digital Anarchy plugins will be updated for the Windows 64-bit environment in Q1 2009.
